, savannah. this was the worst helicopter crash in about four years for u.s. troops. nine troops dead. this happened in zabul province, which is in the south-southeastern section of afghanistan. an area where the taliban controls much of the territory and where coalition forces have been stepping up their attempts to push the taliban out. we are told this crash happened about 4:00 this morning, local time. the military says that there were no reports of enemy fire. that the crash is still under investigation. now, despite the fact that there were no reports of enemy fire, the taliban has called news organizations, including a call here at nbc news in kabul, to claim responsibility for the attack. they say they shot the helicopter down. the taliban often does that, claims responsibility for things that turn out to be accidents. and indeed, most of the helicopter crashes here have turned out to be accidents. maintenance problems, the incredible amount of dust in the air. this is the deadliest year for coalition forces. after today's crash, 525 coalition forces have died this year. 351 o

to this established, old-time republican operatives. it's interesting to sort of see, you know, are they using the anger and frustration of so many of these people for their own political gain for the establishment. >> joe, you're nodding. yeah, this is for me, a work in progress because i've sort of been looking into the financial funding. the spokesperson for opensecrets.org is on the record saying their money comes from things like health care professional, believe it or not, which is fascinating. from, you know, financial concerns, retirees, and one of the big questions, of course, is how much charles and david cook, the big conservative funders, are actually putting into that. it's not clear to me, i mean, i don't know that. so it's sort of dribs and drabs. >> first of all, i think we have our new york guest joining us, john avalon and erick erickson joining us. hi, guys. i hope you can see this, but let's take a look at some of the different groups that have tried to influence the tea party. i think we have a graphic of that. there's the tea party express. tea party patriots, freedomwork
, luke. keep us posted and let us know. >> will do. >> when we get a final tally on the vote. i want to bring in rachel maddox. as you know, a couple of the waivering republicans said you've got to give us a little more room for amendments here. harry reid said no. this is the result. >> well, there's a couple of things. first of all, it's a historic decision to filibuster the defense reauthorization bill. this is something that has passed 48 times in 48 years. it just passes. this is one of the things that just passes. and that's why actually you've seen over the years lots of amendments, lots of things passed that are attached to this. originally when don't ask, don't tell was instituted, it was passed as an amendment to this bill. in 2007, we saw republican senator orrin hatch attach the dream act to this bill. some of john mccain's campaign finance provisions have been attached to this bill. so republican objections that they are very upset about democratic amendments to this are a little strange, given how many amendments republicans have attached to it. also harry reid's office
and recent college graduates. it got us thinking about the promises the president made as he came into office. of course, when he first got into office, very beginning no approval rating until we took one about february of 2009. it showed 76% of americans approved of the job he was doing. and then in february of -- now i should say it is 50% down. some 20 points. down some 20 points. look at this brand new poll of polls. not our poll. this shows that it's down 46%. down to 46%. the president's approval rating. that's not even our poll. take a look at this, though. this is all despite some legislative victories that the president had. health care reform. remember that? although very controversial, financial regulatory overhaul. the stimulus. plus, two supreme court justice confirmations. talking about sonia socieewonia and what is the problem, then? of course, it's the economy and unemployment, as the president heard yesterday. when he got into office, a poll taken around february of 2009. he was at 8.2%. now 9.6% and some think it's going up to 10% unprecedented, very tough for the president
one more day left of summer. so use it wisely. >> yeah. >> i'm john roberts. >> yeah, more the official start of the fall, although it feels like in much of the country like summer. i'm kiran chetry. we'll have much more on christine o'donnell in a few minutes. >>> nato saying that a chopper went down in southern afghanistan this morning killing nine soldiers. the number of dead in 2010 now to at least 529. the most since the war began nine years ago. >>> the great recession is history. that's the official word from a panel of economists who say it ended more than a year ago. well, you didn't feel it, did you? if it's over, why are so many americans feeling so much pain? we're going to talk with economist jeff saks about that this morning. >>> and the debate continues in the senate on whether to dump the don't ask, don't tell policy. in the meantime, lady gaga is waging her own war against the the military policy banning openly gay service members. she brought her star power to a rally in maine urging lawmakers to repeal it. >> what did she say? that freedom is prime rib of

't ask, don't tell. he says "this is not a serious exercise. it's a show." luke russert joins us from capitol hill. where do we stand right now on getting the votes just to move the ball forward? >> reporter: all indications right now, contessa, the democrats will not have the necessary republican votes to break the filibuster on the defense reauthorization bill and hence the debite on it will not go forward. it willie happen after the midterm elections. this is something harry reid deeply wanted to move forward. obviously the don't ask, don't tell is something that excites a lot of democrats, definitely fires up you their base. a lot feel it's morally the right thing to do. that being said, republicans don't necessarily have an adversement to repealing don't ask, don't tell. they're averse to doing it in the manner you're talking about. a lot of republicans have the chance of amendments will not be offered in debate. harry reid would be limiting the amount of the amendments, that's what's alienated voters such as susan collins we heard from as well as owe lip pa snowe. it will be int
